The integration of different perspectives on mobility based on the common spatial reference requires innovative approaches in different areas of geoinformatics. We continue to use and develop concepts and methods of geoinformatics in order to contribute to a better understanding of the diverse connections and dependencies between mobility and spatial conditions.
In the broader application context of mobility there are innovations
promoted in the following areas
Acquisition: different types of data collection, data sources and processing
Modeling: data type, spatial and temporal resolution, homogenization, quality, suitability
Management: organization, data protection, license terms, ethics
Spatial Models & Simulation
Network-based and multidimensional assessment models
Traffic models und simulations
Measure simulation, „what if“ scenarios
Reachability analyzes in networks
Exploration and interaction
Map generation (web, print)
Research performance is within the scope of funded research projects
and institutionally financed projects
Research is carried out within the framework of funded research projects and institutionally financed projects. As a rule, this is done in interdisciplinary consortia. These allow the transfer of GI competencies into the respective domains of mobility research. The spectrum of research activities ranges from basic and application-oriented to contract research as well as expert activities and scientific support. For an overview of all our research projects, see here.
